I would get a few mil surplus rifles. A Mauser, an m44 or the Chinese version, carcano, enfield, arisaka etc. with $1000 you should be able to pick up a few.

How about a Ruger #1 single shot in a caliber of which you don't already have. Even used ones (like on gunbroker) are usually in pristine condition with no scratches, etc. as Ruger #1 owners take really good care of them.

I was thinking getting a few together for my WWII collection to really get it put together. A Mauser and an Enfield would be a good addition to my Mosin.

Springfield 1903. That would be a nice WWII piece. Can never go wrong with an American made historic rifle!

Great choice!!

Can't go wrong. True K98's are getting serious cash these days.

American made yes, but still a copy. Great rifle, but I always felt it was lacking. An M1917 would be better.

Savage 110 BA in 338 Lapua. And if you really have money to play with I would go with a Barrette.

The OP has $1000.00 . If he wants, I'd hook him up w/ an original 1873 trapdoor and leave him w/ money for ammo. I also know of an original Quigly .45-110 that would still leave him w/ $$. This one does not have a Vernier sight.
The sight is $350.00+ on the market now. This is classic Sh!t. Realistic, not wanna be.
If you have $1000.00, and buy a rifle that is $1000.00, how long will it be till you could actually hit a target w/ it?? You need optics. Another $800.00 minimum, bases??, Rings??? This ain't never never land!

My last rifle was a Marlin 1895 XLR Stainless with laminate stock and forearm. Didn't have any levers or anything in .45 cal. in a rifle. I love it, and it'll stop anything on this continent!

Make certain it is stamped "JM" on the barrel near the receiver. Those are pre-Marlington guns.

if you dont already reload i wuld suggest a good handloading setup. it opens so many doors for making normally pricey ammo affordable.

if you already load i would second a marlin 1895 in 45-70 im fond of the guide series due to the extra magazine capacity
